With a first sighting at the 2016 IceBike show, Lazer’s new Revolution helmet promises not only additional protection for the enduro rider but a customisable colour options too. With plenty of competition with this type of product from TroyLee, Giro and Bell to name just a few, how does THis new lid stack up?
Lazer have been off our radar when it comes to trail and enduro helmets and it would be easy to imagine their focus has been on road helmets. With Madison established as the UK distributor for Lazer, and on the heads of the Saracen DH team they have more presence on the trails than a few years ago.
The Revolution is all new, and focused (as always these days) on the enduro rider. So what makes an up-to-date enduro or trail lid then?
Deep coverage at the rear and sides and a stable well-fitting design is a good starting point. Enough ventilation for sustained climbing and a peak that adjusts up far enough with space to park your goggles along with good strap retention are a must too. The weight needs to be light enough to not cause frustration, especially if you’re riding all day.
